About Me

Bernard Soo Chae (aka Dr. Killahertz) produces, engineers, mixes, arranges, writes and performs under the pseudonym, Dr. Killahertz. He is known not just for his sounds but more for his passion in working with the artist and connecting with the listeners. This August, he will graduate from Berklee College of Music with a major in Music Production and Engineering in half the time recommended. He received his B.A. in Psychology from Cornell University in the accelerated graduation program and received his Juris Doctorate from Temple University.
